Plexi TLDR apps & plugins make news summarizations easy

15 million summaries served

The rise of mobile devices presents an obstacle for users and publishers attempting to deliver long-form content. PlexiNLP creates a summarization framework for both users and publishers to demonstrate its capabilities. 

Content summarization and reduction requires the ability to extract the important elements of a document. Plexi NLP applies language indicators about cause, conclusion, relevance, and emotion, to apply accurate decisions about importance when reducing content length. This approach also enables topic-focused reductions based on the subject matter keywords provided by a user. Stremor’s TLDR technology delivers on this and is the most widely-adopted automated summarization tool for consumers on the planet.

Plexi NLP for mobile

The TLDR Reader is the first mobile app to deliver real-time summarization of news articles or web pages to iPhones, iPads, Android Phones, Windows Phone 8, and Android tablets. The app enables users to stay up to date on their favorite news on-the-go from up to 150 real-time headlines in 14 news categories, each with multiple source feeds. News categories include US News, World News, Business, Sports, Technology, Science, Entertainment, Politics, and more. Users have unlimited access to summaries of related stories on the web, with the option to read deeper into the full version of the article through the integrated TLDR Browser. Using the "Find More Like" feature, users can view more headlines and summaries from related stories across the web.

Plexi TLDR apps & plugins F.A.Q.

What does TLDR stand for?
TLDR is an acronym for “too long; didn’t read.” Commonly used in online discussion forums as a shorthand response to posts that are unnecessarily long.
What is the market need?
Recent studies have determined that more than a million pages of content are added to the Internet every day. Generally people are busier than ever before. Summarizing long content down to it’s essence allows people to get more from less.

Which Web Apps are supported by the TLDR Plugin?
TLDR Plugin works with most consumer web apps, such as: Gmail, Hotmail, Yahoo, eHarmony, as well as many enterprise support and CRM web apps.
Why are the TLDR Plugin summaries sometimes irregular?
Unfortunately, poorly written articles do not condense well. Additionally some web sites using deprecated or non-standard HTML may be parsed incorrectly.
Why doesn't TLDR Reader include news photos?
PlexiNLP focuses on the fastest, most efficient mobile news service possible with an emphasis on accurate summaries of full stories. While photos are sometimes nice to view, they are not necessary in deciding if an article is worth reading.
Is TLDR Reader a native app?
No, but it is not a web app either. It is a hybrid. Because PlexiNLP is an advocate of open standards and web applications, TLDR Reader is an HTML5/CSS3/JavaScript web application running under the Cordova framework.

Within the stylized interface, users can go three levels deep. When users reach the fourth level, they are brought to search results at Plexi via the embedded browser.
Can I add my own favorite news or blog feeds to TLDR Reader?
Not yet. The selection of feeds are being expanded, and soon users will gain the ability to add custom feeds to suit their interests.
Is the TLDR Reader App available for licensing?
Yes. The app can be tied to any number of RSS feeds and filtered by keywords, so custom versions of the app can be deployed to track an event, market information about a company, or to work with private feeds from internal product teams.

We are constantly pulling new stories in 14 categories from dozens of leading sources of news. At any given time, there can be up to 2,000 available news summaries with hundreds more appearing every hour.
